Steve Jobs (1955 – 2011)

Of all the quotes and clever graphics circulating the web today, this one is my favourite.


Strange day.  This morning I didn’t need to be in court for jury duty until 10am, so I had a bit of a sleep in and took my time getting into the city.  When we arrived we all had to hand in our phones so I spent a few hours being “unplugged” from the world.

It was some time before we were brought into the court room, and as soon as we took our seats the judge advised us that the trial had come to a close.  No reason was given, but I notice that the same defendant is listed in tomorrow’s criminal trial list so I’m guessing that they’re starting over with a new jury.  Perhaps we heard evidence that was determined to be inadmissible?  Whatever the case it was disappointing to not be able to see it through.

On the other hand, this left us suddenly free for the afternoon and I decided that I’d hit the shops rather than go back to work.  I don’t often make it into the city during the usual 9-5 bustle so I took my time and saw lots of new things.  I was in Harvey Norman testing out a cute little MacBook Air when I opened Safari and saw the news for the first time.



How fitting that I should discover the news on one of his groundbreaking devices.

I’ve been planning to buy that MacBook Air for a while, and tonight I finally placed the order.  It’s going to be a long two weeks while I wait for it to make its way from Hong Kong to my desk at work, but I know from experience that it will be amazing.  All because of the vision of one man with the courage to think outside the square.

Rest peacefully, Mr Jobs.  And thank you for putting so many tools into the palms of our hands.
